Question about Fishing
Sometime when you add line to a spincast reel, where you tie the knot and wind line onto the reel, it makes a bump in the spool, this "bump" in the spool sometimes hits inside the reel everytime it makes a rotation....

SOURCE: threading reel to reel
Depending on which brand of recorder you have, most do have a general threading scheme. As you are facing the unit, the supply (full) reel would be on the your left and the take-up (empty) would be to the right. Position the supply reel so that the leader end of the tape will be on the outside. Pull the tape end around the shut off sensor lever so that it moves freely. Now pull the tape leader between the rubber pinch roller and capstan (in the case the unit has dual capstans). If it has a single roller on the right side, pull the tape between the heads and then between the roller/capstan. If unit has dual shut off sensor levers, pull tape around this sensor as you did the first, making sure it moves freely. Then thread the tape leader into the take-up reel slot. Press play. Both reels should turn counter clockwise.

You can find the manual here: http://web.archive.org/web/20050111070512/http://www.avs.ca/uploaded_files/owner_manuals/841558_reel_media_center_ib.pdf
As for the reels, there are 2 possible solutions:
1: Try to find new old stock reels. The website for Polyconcept
USA (which made the Reel media center) has been down since 2008, so the company may have gone bankrupt.
I found one internet shop that may still have blank reels for sale: www.americanbargain.com/product.asp?productid=7008
2: You can use 1/8" Nagra reels which are still being made, the tape is the same 1/8"(3.175mm) width as the tape used on the Reel Media Center.
The Nagra reels have a different hub, so you will need to improvise and make your own hub adapter.
I found reels like that on Ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/NAGRA-SN-METAL-REELS-for-SN-SNN-SNS-SNST-10-REELS_W0QQitemZ400026885481QQcmdZViewItemQQptZVintage_Electronics_R2?hash=item400026885481&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50

On the front of the spool there is a device to turn to set the drag. Torn it tighter and tighten it until slightly below the breaking point of your fishing line. It isn't a critical adjustment, it just keeps your line from breaking while trying to land a fish.

Tighten the drag star to expose the black ratch ring. Press the ratchet ring down towards the star drag as you turn the handle backwards to unscrew it from the crank shaft.

alright man......i had the same problem. it just takes a little bit of elbow grease, bot it does twist open, it's just harder than hell to get it to twist off. I took a towel and laid it over the reel, and lightly tapped on it with a hammer to loosen it up a bit.
